Do we need to register? Oct 27, 2008

Hi Romina,

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to participate in this online powwow.

Just to make sure that we have it all set for tomorrow, could you please confirm whether we need (or not) to register on the website in order to be able to watch the broadcast and use the chat feature. The information on the powwow page mentions is somewhat confusing...

Thank you in advance!

Interesting Event Oct 28, 2008

I'm currently watching the event. Very interesting, not only from a translator's point of view, but also as a real world example of what is possible with modern internet technology. Just because of this event and as a thank you for making this event available, I decided to renew my Proz membership, which expired several weeks ago.
